I'm a real person outside my classroom. I'm a real woman working through my own issues with body image. And just as much I see my students in ways they've yet to realize, it's okay for them to see me too.

"Some days I'm an incredible mom and a sucky businesswoman. Some days I'm a great businesswoman and a terrible wife. Some days I'm perfect in all roles at home and barely available at work or for friends. I'll never able to evenly divide my attention to my hats. I'll never be perfect, but everyday I'm good at something, and I have to look for that." | Lisa Price
As I'm gearing up to enter a different classroom this Tuesday - to make room in my heart for another group of students - I couldn't do so without properly acknowledging the blueprint of my experience with you all and how much it means to me. Ya'll gave me purpose at a time when I was only guessing at what I should be doing. Ya'll were a constant confirmation that there is value in pouring into others, without expectation of return. That the return, is inevitably and undeniably, of greater value. And that relationship building is worth the effort, no matter what differences may suggest otherwise.
